It happens everywhere, in my school 75% of the teachers are not worth the money I invested they just seem that are very unhappy with their lives and want to make everyone else miserable.

25% are good and worth of my money and having met them.

You have two choices, ignore whatever they do to you and just pass your tests thinking that you won't ever see them again once you finish.

Or speak up your concerns and study like there is no tomorrow everyday and get the best grades possible and challenge the bad teachers every time you have a chance.

It doesn't matter where you go there are had people in the world. And those bad people don't like smart students. They like sheep students that think that teachers are some sort of godly creatures. But they don't understand that respect is earned.

Just lie low. Sucks. I never knew nursing school would be like it is. Just finished. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE experience. Hazing, scoffed at, shredded to pieces, you name it, just for wanting to become the compassionate, efficient nurse. I am an abused person now.

I am curious where you are going to school. I am 2 classes away from graduating with my MSN in Nursing Education. Some of the teachers are great and some are horrible and need to be fired. Your adviser should be someone who you can confide in and trust. My adviser shares my e-mails with the nursing department. I would NEVER teach there and my advise to any upcoming nursing students is this Don't go there! When I first started at SUNY/IT many fellow students told me to drop out before I got too far and now it's too late. 2 classes left with a defensive and angry instructor and an adviser who shares my private e-mails with the entire staff!! A lot of instructors are great but they only have 5 full time faculty members. Eventually you will have to take this teachers class, she is the only one who teaches it. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!

Why would she share your private emails? I had a professor who went and told my clinical instructor everything I did wrong. Total violation of privacy.

I totally feel you. I go to HCC Tampa and it's the same. Crap teachers, crap exams, crap administrators. My schedule changes constantly. 5 different instructors for one class and none of them communicate. The instructions concerning material is worthless. The clinicals suck too. The whole program is garbage. I used to wonder why the health care system sucks now I'm learning why. Maybe that is the point of the program: to learn why the American health care industry is getting worse. "But this is what makes a good nurse". No, it's not. The way this program works at my college, I should just teach myself. In fact, nursing should just be contingent on the NCLEX so I can study to pass it instead of trying to learn how to deal with every ***** at my college. I spend more time trying to figure what to do, where to go, and when to go then I do studying nursing. And it's hilarious that student's need an 80 percent to pass. That is an indicator right there that the college takes zero responsibility to adequately instruct its students. And its a typical American response to a subject that requires thinking. No child left behind, 3 strikes and your out, zero tolerance...it's all crap. And it doesn't work to build quality anything. Great, you have a nurse that passed a crap program. Do you really think that nurse is going to want to go above and beyond after graduating? After getting raped for 2 plus years? It's like sending a soldier to the crappiest battlefield then expecting that person to function adequately in a civilized sector. That person is going to do the least required. Maybe that's the point. So nothing changes. Let's destroy anything good this student had going for them so when they get in the workplace they will obediently bow to management. It's all beginning to make sense now. The program pumps you full of what a good nurse is and by the last semester your success is based on a select all question that the instructor doesn't even take the time to proofread. It's a joke of a program, it's not even acknowledged as a full-time program, overpriced, underfunded, with the added benefit of crusty old haggard instructors. I can't wait until I am finished with it and it's nothing but a nightmare of a memory. I hope all my instructors get cancer for Christmas.

My advice to you is to just quit nursing school. You have used the "r" word to describe your instructors, you've described nursing school as "being raped" and wish cancer on your instructors. Venting is one thing but this is over the top.

It's highly offensive to bandy around the word rape like that. Those of us who have been sexually assaulted have a hard enough time dealing with the after math, you shouldn't add to it. Referring to anyone with the "r" word is just wrong.

And wishing cancer one someone? Don't even get my started. I'm sure my husband, who is a cancer survivor, will be thrilled to know that someone is wishing this horrible disease one anyone.

If you want to be taken seriously, try giving examples of why your program is so bad, and leave out all the vitriol.

Being a college instructor does not take any education training. These are nurses by profession, not teachers. Combine that with the old saying that "those who can do, those who can't teach." And it should start forming a decent picture of why nursing school is such a disaster in this country.

Sounds like you guys should have done some research and picked a better school.

Mine is great. Accredited with a clinical ratio of 8 to 1 : : students : instructor.
